The same harmonization work is deemed necessary for the treatment of supraglottic(More)
Recently, a new acoustic device, the so-called Sophono Alpha System, has been introduced into clinical practice. The aim of this study was to assess Sophono Alpha System hearing aids in ten patients suffering from recurrent chronic middle ear disease who underwent subtotal petrosectomy. Presence of mixed hearing loss with bone conduction thresholds better(More)
Adjuvant chemotherapy, advanced age, smoking, cardiopathies, diabetes, local infections, impaired immunocompetence, and malnutrition are potential cofactors in the genesis of aberrant wound healing and may thus play an important role in the genesis of tracheostomal stenosis. The aim of the study is to analyse the influence of the above-mentioned local and(More)
Laryngeal sensitivity is crucial for maintaining safe swallowing, thus avoiding silent aspiration. The sensitivity test, carried out by fiberoptic endoscopic examination of swallowing, plays an important role in the assessment of dysphagic patients. The ventricular folds appear to be more sensitive than the epiglottis during the sensitivity test. Therefore,(More)
Work-related noise exposure is one of the major factors contributing to the development of adult-onset hearing loss and tinnitus. The aim of this study was to analyze, in patients with chronic tinnitus and long-term occupational noise exposure, (A) characteristics of hearing loss, tinnitus, comorbidities, demographic characteristics and a history of(More)

Retromolar trigone (RMT) tumours are rare and aggressive malignancies, which require an aggressive surgical approach. The reconstruction oral cavity defects represent a challenge because of the critical role of this area both aesthetically and functionally. Free radial forearm (RF) or anterolateral thigh (ALT) flap are the first choice for the repair of(More)
